For more than 50 years, IES Abroad has built a legacy partnering with Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCUs) and Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs). As part of our Initiative to Diversify Education Abroad, we continue to create programs and initiatives to help increase access to study abroad.
At IES Abroad, we’re dedicated to making study abroad more accessible and affordable for our students through study abroad scholarships and financial aid. So we’re excited to announce that in 2017 we awarded $5.1 million for the 2017-18 academic year for study abroad students and summer interns!
During the Fall 2017 semester, IES Abroad students studying abroad in Rome had the rare opportunity to attend a conference on the management of cultural heritage in Italy, and a guest lecture on the importance of art conservation.
I had the privilege of visiting Dublin with my family this fall. Like many folks from Chicago, where there’s a large population of people with Irish heritage, we went with the intention of ‘discovering our roots’ (which my dad was able to do).
